I've been sure of this before, but now I have proof, so to speak. I ate a small mint yesterday afternoon. As always, I have stomach pain and abnormal distension. I ate the mint over 30 hours ago and I'm now burping up mint. I wondered before about my vagus nerve being damaged by my previous stomach surgery that set off the extreme pain and distension. I guess I need to call my gastroenterologist. I'm just venting.
